DEC 2017: Seattle's Longest Night Ball chooses Page Ahead!
Every year, the Seattle domain hosts a Featured Game of the Month in December called The Longest Night Ball, held as close as possible to the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. As it is a regional event, they have been given permission to solicit donations to their sponsored charity, Page Ahead. Page Ahead is the leading provider of children's books and literacy services in Washington State, serving more than 850,000 children with over 2.7 million new books since 1990. They serve children, families and communities, with new books for children, literacy support for families, and reading resources for communities.

For the entire month of December, donations to Page Ahead will be worth regional prestige, whether or not you are able to attend the Longest Night Ball! The exchange rate of money to prestige remains $3 = 1 R (like all regional charities) and you must send your receipts to the Seattle DC <> so that it goes into the Longest Night Ball prestige report. When sending in your proof, please include a receipt for items bought or money donated. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the ARC Charities at!

2017 Regional Recruitment Drive

A community and game relies on the steady introduction of new players in order to grow and thrive. To that end, the office of the Regional Coordinator is pleased to announce a brand-new Regional Recruitment Initiative. Starting now and running through the end of January of 2018, a member who recruits a new member and mentors them for four months may be eligible for 100 Regional Prestige not only for themselves, but for their recruit or mentee as well.

To qualify as a new member, the recruit/mentee must have been with the club less than six months and be MC 1–2, or be entirely new to the club. The Mentorship program is open to all members of the club, so even our newer members are welcome to do so.

The goal of the program is to not only bring in new members, but to help orient them to how the Mind’s Eye Society does things. During the course of the four-month mentorship period, the mentor is expected teach the mentee how to:

  • Get on email lists
  • Navigate the MES Website
  • Add sheets to the database
  • Write up a good approval request

In addition to learning the aforementioned skills, the mentee is expected to:

  • Attend a minimum of one game a month
  • Pay for their membership
  • Complete and pass all basic Membership Standards, 1–10 (Note: Storyteller, Venue and Coordinator Standards not included.)

Upon completion of the mentorship period, submit a screenshot of the list of passed membership standards, and a list of the games and dates that the mentee attended to the Regional Coordinator at with the heading Regional Recruitment Initiative.
